Biography

After a year of graduate study of mathematics in Basel, Fueter began study in 1899 at the University of Göttingen and completed his Promotieriung in 1903 with dissertation Der Klassenkörper der quadratischen Körper und die komplexe Multiplikation under David Hilbert.{{MathGenealogy|id=7356}} After his Promotion, Fueter studied for 1 year in Paris, 3 months in Vienna, and 6 months in London. In 1905 he completed his Habilitierung at the University of Marburg. Fueter worked as a docent in 1907/1908 at Marburg and in the winter of 1907/1908 at the Bergakademie Clausthal. He was called to positions as professor ordinarius in 1908 at Basel, in 1913 at the Technische Hochschule Karlsruhe, and in 1916 at the University of Zurich. From 1920 to 1922 he was the rector of the University of Zurich.Fueter did research on algebraic number theory and quaternion analysis. He also published a proof of the Fueter–Pólya theorem with George Pólya.In 1910 he was one of the founders of the Swiss Mathematical Society and he became its first president. With Andreas Speiser he was instrumental in the editing and publication of the collected works of Leonhard Euler and from 1927 he was the head of the Euler Commission. He gave plenary lectures at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1932 at Zurich (Idealtheorie und Funktionentheorie) and in 1936 at Oslo (Die Theorie der regulären Funktionen einer Quaternionenvariablen). During WWII he was a colonel of artillery in the Swiss army, an outspoken opponent of German National Socialism, and an advocate for freedom of the press. Fueter was an editor for the Commentarii Mathematici Helvetici.Fueter married in 1908 and had a daughter.
